I have bought a generic ps3 gamepad expecting that it will work on usb, I don't know anything related to gasia. Now I find that it's gasia one. It cannot work even on usb? jtest-gtk detetect it, but it doesn't work. Anybody knows how to get it working at least connected by usb cable?
I have a German keyboard on my laptop (Xubuntu 11.10), so my default layout is the German one (de). Whenever I connect the Dualshock 3 with the USB the layout gets changed to English (us). This also happens when I use Bluetooth.
I also configured the controller to act as input (keyboard/mouse), could this be the problem?
(QtSixA version: 1.5.1 from the ppa, with 64bit 3.0.0 kernel)
I say you have something not properly configured.
If you say 'This also happens when I use Bluetooth.', then it's not a problem with the sixaxis driver.
I've installed Qtsixa via the PPA on 11.10 64bit and am not able to get a Sixaxis PS3 controller to connect via bluetooth. I get zero response from the GUI and when I start it via the terminal, it connects, I get a rumble from the controller and then a line that says:
Bad Sixaxis buffer (out of battery?), disconneting now...
(Misspelling is from the CLI.)
I've searched the web and this thread and can't come up with anything. Anyone have any ideas?
There's also an ID showing in the Qtsixa GUI:
I can plug it in and it is recognized, but when I play a game, the controls aren't right. For instance, in GTA3 my character runs in circles without me touching any controls. When I try SuperTux Cart the controller is listed as available, but pressing any buttons does nothing.
I did the hidraw-dump and the terminal window showed blocks of 2 digit hex? characters that would change as I manipulated the controls. Not sure if you wanted to see anything else?
Thanks for looking into this!
